4 years ago, we made the decision make PCB our annual family vacation. The water is crystal blue, lots to do with young kids and the weather is soooo beautiful! I totally recommend for families of all ages.

We entered at beach access point #57. The parking is free across the street. No problem getting in and out. The beach is beautiful white sand. If you want to avoid crowds stay on the right side of the pier.

Panama City Beach in the fall and spring (when the crowds are smaller) is my happy place! We always have a great, relaxing time. We always see dolphins in the distance, sting rays, fish, etc. There are usually lots of shells to be found and...More

Look into shell island tours. We did a private boat tour and snorkel and it was great. Saw lots of dolphins and the caption helped us find sea urchins, star fish and sand dollars. We did see parasailing but didn't look into... More

Hi SunshineBeachChic, My family and I have been going to PCB for 20 years and it's our favorite. The sand is so soft, sugary white, and doesn't burn your feet like darker sand does. The ocean is a beautiful aqua and emerald... More
